Bowie Police investigate series of four vehicle burglaries

Published

on

Bowie Police are investigating a series of four auto burglaries that occurred during the nighttime hours of March 27.
Sgt. Scott Parker said all of the burglaries were reported the morning of March 28 when the owners discovered the autos had been rummaged through or something was missing.
The incidents were reported by Michael and Melissa McMillian, 710 Lee Street, and Jacquelyn McLean, Natalie Walker and Mindy Gresham, all residents at The Grove at Brushy Creek at 1101 Eldorado and Patterson.
Parker said it appears all of the vehicles were unlocked and there was no damage to any of them. Items taken included a wallet, a small amount of cash, medication and some credit and debit cards.
“The common factor between them is the suspect used an online cash app to try and get money sent to him, which has helped us identify a 16-year-old male as a possible suspect,” explained Parker.
Residents are encouraged by police to keep their vehicles locked at their homes and businesses, as well as their homes when they are away from them.
Drivers also should not leave valuable items or documents in the vehicle. Parker said summertime is coming up and it is high season for vehicle burglaries, which should prompt additional vigilance by residents.
The police are still seeking the suspect as the investigation continues.

Foot, K-9 search planned Tuesday for missing man

A search is planned Tuesday for Bryce Degler, missing for almost one week.

The Clay County Sheriff’s office has organized the search where law enforcement will be using search dogs, a plane and drones to search specific areas in Clay County, along with deputies and paramedics walking the area in hopes of finding Bryce. The group will be small as to not throw off the search dogs. The focus will be in the area where Dingler’s truck was found last Wednesday.

The Nocona News Facebook page stated Monday evening: “At the request of Dr. Len Dingler, while everyone’s desires to help find their missing son Bryce are appreciated, the family asks you limit your support tomorrow to prayers and allow the professionals do their jobs, unhindered with extra untrained bodies and false footprints which could divert their efforts.” Bryce is Len’s son.

Petition seeks to remove DA from office

Published

Casey Hall

A petition was filed mid-week with the 97th District Clerk seeking the removal of 97th District Attorney Casey Hall for “incompetency or official misconduct.”
The document was filed by Tim Cole, former DA and longtime area attorney, on July 17. Texas law allows any resident of the county where the allegations occurred to file such a petition on any elected official.
As of Friday noon, no judge had been assigned and Hall had not been served notice of the filing per the district court.
A recent example of this type of petition occurred in Clay County in January 2023 after Sheriff Jeff Lyde was arrested on charges of official oppression. Former District Judge Frank Douthitt filed that petition and the state was represented by Hall and the Clay County attorney Seth Slagle.
Casey Hall, DA for the three-county 97th District since 2016, was arrested on July 8 on a grand jury indictment for theft of property $2,500 to $30,000, a state jail felony. She was released on a $5,000 bond. The allegations stem from misappropriation of state grant funds with the investigation conducted by the Texas Attorney General’s staff.
Removal action
The removal action is directed to David Evans, judge of the 8th administrative judicial region, which has jurisdiction in this case. It seeks to have the officer removed for incompetency or official misconduct, acts or omissions while in the performance of her duties as the district attorney.
